Esporão, Bico Amarelo 2021, Vinho Verde, Portugal
Tasting Note: A good vinho verde with more weight and body than your typical vinho verde.
Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has a medium-intensity nose of green-and-red apple, pear, orange citrus and blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied vinho verde has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a tart, medium-plus finish.
A straightforward vinho verde that would pair well with heavier dishes like the roasted potatoes and crème sauce I’m enjoying this evening.
